Today as I posed in my kitchen by the dresser
I reflected on its history..
it was a surprise 21st birthday from John
way before we were married ,
It proudly displays my blue and white china,
collected from far and wide over many years.,
I enjoy mixing new and not so new, both
in my house and my dressing.

A LITTLE GLAMOUR,MY WAY, EVERY DAY
Just found your blog and reading back through some posts :-)"My hat dates from the 1950's (,me too.)" this made me chuckle. I too date back to the 50s, great times. I, however, have not kept anything from back then. I wish I had been a hoarder. I would love to just open up a box of my past. Instead I trawl ebay searching for reminders. I recently bought a couple of tiny blue porcelain trinket boxes as they were the exact same ones my mother used to keep on her bedside table to keep her earrings in. I also bought a Noddy egg cup because I used to have the same one as a child. What a funny old world :-)Great to meet you.Pop by for a chat.DiX
Thankyou Di, for stopping by. I am glad now that I come from a family of hoarders, as many things contain so many memories., like some of our original Noddy books. X Jill

Thank you Seeker, nice to meet another hat lover. Glad to discover you and Tres Chic Style Bits.
What an elegantly gorgeous piece of furniture and china collection you have! I would want to pose in front of it for an outfit shoot if I had one akin to it as well. The blue in the dishes really makes the white in your chic outfit pop all the more. Big hugs & many thanks for your lovely comment on Thursday's post,♥ Jessica
